5:48pm
>> i wish it could stick around for a couple months. >> we have about a 20 to 25 degree drop. pretty substantial little cold wave headed our way. we'll have all the forecasts for you in just a bit. one thing is for sure. starting tonight and you are really going to feel it tomorrow. and most of this week looks like it's going to be turning off colder out there. say good-bye to the 70s and we talked about that last week. telling everybody to just enjoy what's going on with this weekend. 53 degrees for a high tomorrow. that's going to be about almost 20 degrees or so cooler. and as we get into wednesday, we will be much much cooler with a high of only 50. the rain comes in tonight and lasts for most of the morning hours tomorrow. we should be drier in the afternoon. 67 out here. we've cooled off a little bit. still hanging on to lower
5:49pm
70s down for fredericksburg. middle 60s. and way out to the west, still sitting in the middle 60s. here's the forecast for the evening hours. clouds at 7:00. spotty shower by 9:00 and that will carry on through the evening hours. i have to believe though that most of this evening is going to be dry. the rain is still way back out to the west of us. and you can see right here on satellite and radar together, there's a couple little spotty showers trying to pop up on this side of the mountains. most of this is going to be evaporating and on over to the west. i think most of the rain will come through with this main batch overnight tonight. and it will be with us for most of the evening hours or morning hours, pardon me. all of this is being driven by a frontal system through ohio right now. and earlier i showed you the snow. it's no big deal with you represents how cold the air mass is farther to the west
5:50pm
and the northwest. the up michigan northern sections, the snow is flying out there. and probably see some snow into chicago as well. future cast shows tonight at 6:00, that's where the rain is. we just showed you that. watch how it comes on across. and by tomorrow morning, still some lingering rain here. so unfortunately it looks like the morning commute will be wet. that's never a good thing. it will clear out of here. break into sunshine by the afternoon. and means that tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening's commute will stay dry. the winds will be blustery behind the front and feel colder. 49 tonight. winds will be picking up 10 to 20 miles an hour. as the showers come through, not expecting thunder storms and not expecting anything heavy. may amount to a quarter of an inch, some places could get a half an inch tomorrow, late morning. and again with the winds, it's
5:51pm
